GBP/USD: technical analysis 20.12.19

Current trend

GBP/USD is in the stage of upward correction after falling to the level of 1.2329, but the downward trend is still maintained. The breakdown of the support level 1.30005 will let GBP/USD continue the downward dynamic and reach the area of levels 1.29700-1.29395.

Alternative scenario

The pullback and pair’s sustained trading above the 1.30310 level will be a sign of an upward correction and give a prospect of growth to the 1.30615 resistance. The key target of the “bullish” correction will be the level of 1.31226, which corresponds to the middle line of Bollinger Bands. There is a chance of a downward rebound, while its breakout would be a signal for upward trend resumption.
